Terms and Conditions
You must be over 21 and have held a full driving licence for 2 years. On collecting your motorhome, you will be asked to sign the hire company’s own terms and conditions of hire making the rental subject to a direct contract between each driver and the hire company. A credit card bond of $1000 will be taken upon collection of the vehicle. The credit card holder is jointly and severally liable for any damage to the rental vehicle. The bond is fully refundable when the vehicle is returned to the correct location on time, is full of fuel and all other terms of the Rental Contract have been complied with. If there is damage to the vehicle on its return, the Bond will be used to cover the cost of such damage up to the amount of the relevant Liability. However, if the terms of the Rental Contract are breached and the Bond is insufficient to cover the damage, extra costs will be charged.

Public Liability Insurance
Public Liability Insurance is included in the nightly rental rate. Apollo is insured for damages to third parties and/or their property. The public liability insurance that covers the registered drivers is only up to the statutory limit as stipulated by law of the State you are in at the time.
The guest is responsible up to the amount of $1,000 for the cost of damage to the rented RV. The Liability is applicable regardless of who is at fault and must be paid at the time the accident is reported to Apollo, not at the completion of the rental period. In addition to the Liability, an administration fee of $75 will be charged per claim.
A collision damage waiver is not available in the USA.
Incidents must be reported within 24 hours and be accompanied by a written accident report and police report or file number.
At all times the guest is responsible for:
- Damage caused to the RV where the terms of Rental Contract have been breached
- Damage caused by negligence/wilful conduct or impaired driving
- Damage caused to the RV in any way by part or total water submersion or salt water
- Damage caused due to a single vehicle roll-over
- Damage caused to the RV when using the RV in contravention of any legislation or regulation controlling vehicular traffic
- Damage or loss caused to any personal belongings
- Damage to the awning, slide-out, overhead or underbody of the RV
- Damage caused to tires and windshield except where Windshield & Tire Protection has been purchased and applies
- Damages caused by neglecting proper operating procedures, e.g. incorrect fuel type and quality, ignoring oil or coolant levels, air pressure, etc.
- Damages caused by freezing/overheating e.g. unit not winterized, or overheating of RV or systems, e.g. plumbing or water systems
- Damage caused when travelling on restricted or prohibited roads/regions.
Vehicles must be returned with the interior cleaned and holding tanks emptied. The vehicle’s exterior does not require cleaning unless it is difficult to ascertain the condition of the vehicle on return. Fees will apply if the vehicle is not returned in the required condition.
Not all RV’s are suitable for all driving situations, so it’s important that the right RV is chosen for the travel planned. Apollo, at its discretion, may restrict RV travel in certain areas due to adverse road and weather conditions, and the distance to nominated destinations in relation to the length of the rental period. For the safety of guests, the following travel restrictions are in place:
- Travel to Death Valley is limited to the low season (September 15 through May 15) due to extreme temperatures and road conditions.
- Travel on the Dempster Highway in the Yukon is not permitted between 15 September and 14 May due to road conditions. We are happy for our guests to travel on this road between 15 May and 14 September.
- Travel to other remote areas not mentioned here may be possible, only if written permission is obtained from Apollo prior to travel.
Urban Travel Restrictions
Campervans and Class “C” RV’s cannot be driven to Manhattan due to parking and vehicle height restrictions. Vehicles carrying propane gas are not permitted in Manhattan or to travel in underground or underwater tunnels.
Parking of your vehicle is prohibited in the greater metropolitan areas of Montreal and Ottawa. This includes all pay parking lots, hotel parking lots, side streets, malls, etc. To travel into these areas, park your vehicle at a campsite and use public transportation, taxi, etc. In the event of a theft that occurs in the Montreal or Ottawa metropolitan area, the guest is responsible for $7,500. Guests assume all responsibility for any expense or loss of time while travelling in restricted areas.
Prohibited Travel Areas
The below roads/regions are always prohibited:
- Logging and non-public roads
- Any and all unnumbered roads and highways
- All roads in Nunavut
Due to the poor conditions of some roads and highways, guests are prohibited from travelling on the following roads:
|Alaska||Quebec, Newfoundland and Labrador|
|Denali Highway (Hwy 8 from Paxson to Cantwell)||Highway 500 (Trans Labrador Highway) from Goose Bay to Labrador City|
|Highway 500 (Trans Labrador Highway) from Goose Bay to Labrador City||Highway 389 from Labrador City to Baie Comeau|

|Northway Road (off AK-2) to Northway||Highway 109 and Baie James Road, Quebec|
|Nabesna Road (off AK-1) to Nabesna|
Guests who travel to Prohibited and Restricted areas without permission will be subject to a $1500.00 penalty and will void all insurance coverage. Apollo reserves the right to restrict driving access at any time. These restrictions may be applied at the time of pick-up.
Apollo is happy for guests to attend festivals from any of our locations with pre-authorized permission to travel and payment of the applicable festival surcharge:
- Burning Man Festival in Nevada has a charge of $1500 for all Apollo RV rentals.
- Other festivals such as EDC in Las Vegas, or Woodstock in New York have a charge of $750 per unit.
Apollo reserves the right to alter or change the list of festivals affected by the surcharge. Guests who take vehicles to festivals must request permission at the time of reservation.
Guests who travel to festivals without permission will be required to pay the festival surcharge at drop-off and will void all insurance coverage.
All RV’s must be winterized when travelling in freezing conditions. As the weather in parts of the USA can be unpredictable, Apollo will winterize their units as the temperatures start to drop into the freezing zone. Once the RV is winterized, no water can be put into the fresh water tank and it cannot be hooked up to the water supply. Therefore, no water is available in the motorhome.
It is the guests’ responsibility to have the RV winterized while on a trip at their own expense should the weather conditions require. The guest is also financially responsible for having the RV re-winterised on the return trip if the RV was winterized at the time of pick-up. A $150 re-winterization fee will be charged if the RV is returned non-winterized when the temperature is 32 degrees Fahrenheit or below.
The guest will be fully responsible for any damages to the plumbing and water systems caused by freezing during their trip.
We understand that, while on holiday, the RV may require small repairs or small items included in the kitchen kit may need to be replaced. So as not to disturb the road trip any further, if the damage was not caused by the guest, repairs up to $100 can be completed without authorisation and will be reimbursed on presentation of the receipts at the time of drop off. If repairs over $100 are needed, the Apollo On-road team needs to be informed prior to the repair being completed. All RV’s are covered for 24/7 mechanical emergency roadside assistance.
Infringements, Tolls and Fines
Apollo will pass on any charges the guest receives for traffic infringements, toll way or parking fines during their road trip. If the guest pays these fines immediately and provides proof of payment, there will be no additional administration fees. However, if the guest delays in paying the fines we reserve the right to charge an administration fee.
We are happy for guests to bring a pet dog or cat on their vacation in our RV for a fee of $300. Service animals can travel in our RV’s free of charge with prior permission and proof of service certification. We ask that guests tell us in advance if they wish to bring their pet and require guests to ensure their pet does not cause any damage to the vehicle. Should additional pet cleaning be required at drop off, additional cleaning charges will apply.
Smoking is not allowed in our RV’s. A penalty of $500 will be imposed for smoking inside the RV to cover the costs of sanitizing and cleaning. Payment at Branches For security reasons, Apollo will only accept credit card or debit card payments for rental charges paid at RV pick-up or drop-off locations. Cash payments will not be accepted at rental branches. The Security deposit on the RV is only payable at pick-up. We accept Visa, Mastercard, American Express, & Diners Club. Travel Insurance Apollo strongly recommends that guests ensure they take out the highest level of personal Travel Insurance to cover and protect them from unexpected circumstances on their vacation.
If for any reason beyond the company’s control, the reserved vehicle is not available, Apollo reserves the right to substitute a vehicle of equivalent value or offer a higher rated vehicle at no additional cost. Should a lower rated vehicle be substituted, the company’s only responsibility is to refund the difference between the two vehicles. Although this is infrequent, accidents or mechanical repairs may force substitutions.
Apollo makes no representation as to fuel consumption. Vehicles are supplied with a full tank and should be returned with a full tank. If the guest returns with less fuel than on departure, they will be charged for that amount of fuel. There is no refund if the guest returns with more fuel than on departure.
